I'd agree with the rest of your ratings, but in the latter part of the first half, I thought Walcott was making England's best runs. He disappeared later, and Capello was right to sub him off, but he wasn't that bad.

Johnson didn't have the best game, so we were weak on that side for most of the game anyway.
Theo got better as he went but I have to admit I prefer the more direct play you would get from Lennon or Ashley Young. Theo is so natural when he shoots inside the 18 yard box, hes begging to be played as a striker (Owen Esq) especially if Rooney goes back to the deep free role.

As for Johnson, the quicker Richards improves, the better for ENGLAND. Hell I'd even consider Jagielka there when Terry/Rio return.
